Hugh Masekela- Send Me

Dis waaruit Pres CR aangehaal het. Dink dis my nuwe nasionale lied

I wanna be there when the people start to turn it around
When they triumph over poverty
I wanna be there when the people win the battle against AIDS
I wanna lend a hand
I wanna be there for the alcoholic
I wanna be there for the drug addict
I wanna be there for the victims of violence and abuse
I wanna lend a hand
Send me

[Chorus]
Thuma mina (thuma m’na)
Thuma mina (ezizweni)
Ndizoya ndithandaze

I wanna be there when the people win the battle against AIDS
I wanna lend a hand
I wanna be there for the victims of violence and abuse
I wanna lend a hand
Send me

[Chorus]
Thuma mina (thuma m’na)
Thuma mina (ezizweni)
Ndizoya ndithandaze

Esitimeleni (thuma m’na)
Emabusini (ezizweni)
Emataxini (ndizoya ndithandaze)
Emapartini (thuma m’na)
Emabashini (ezizweni)
Emashabeeni (ndizoya ndithandaze)

[Repeat x2]
Ebusuku (thuma m’na)
Nasemini (ezizweni)
Asilali (ndizoya ndithandaze)

Emataxini (thuma m’na)
Emabusini (ezizweni)
Esitimeleni (ndizoya ndithandaze)
Emabusini (thuma m’na)
Emataxini (ezizweni)
Nesitimeleni (ndizoya ndithandaze)
Emashabeeni (thuma m’na)
Emapartini (ezizweni)
Emabashini (ndizoya ndithandaze)
Emapartini (thuma m’na)
Emashabeeni (ezizweni)
Esitimeleni (ndizoya ndithandaze)

[Chorus]
Thuma mina (thuma m’na)
Thuma mina (ezizweni)
Ndizoya ndithandaze

  1. Dis regtig sulke mooi woorde, net nie juis my koppie tee as dit by die lied self kom nie … die melodie is bietjie, uhm, vréémd. Maar sjoe – baie gepas vir die geleentheid! Nou kan Bra Hugh en Ingrid Jonker albei spog dat hulle hulp op groot SA geleenthede ingeroep is. En kyk hoe lekker vat politiek en poësie hande!
